A vulnerability in libxslt could result in Denial of Service.
|Package||dev-libs/libxslt on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.1.26-r3|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.1.26-r3|
libxslt is the XSLT C library developed for the GNOME project. XSLT is an XML language to define transformations for XML.
An out of bounds read error has been found in libxslt/pattern.c in libxslt.
A remote attacker could entice a user to process an XML file using a specially crafted XSLT stylesheet in an application linked against libxslt, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libxslt users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libxslt-1.1.26-r3"
